“Even girls made of stars are captives, bound at the wrists and traded like property. Even girls made of stars aren't asked, aren't believed, aren't considered worth the effort unless they can offer something in return.
Even girls made of stars buy into those lies sometimes.”
Ashley Herring Blake, Girl Made of Stars

“Because when they thought the stars were sticking to her, really all the loneliness and sadness were falling off. The stars were underneath.”
Ashley Herring Blake, Girl Made of Stars

“This. This is why I never said anything. Because no one ever believes the girl.”
Ashley Herring Blake, Girl Made of Stars
